- Not much of significance happened. American Idol was 18% down from last week to a Thursday low this season, but that's largely a function of more competition and, perhaps more importantly, the fact that it was just one hour this week vs. two last week. The only other big movers were Rules of Engagement, up four-tenths thanks to the original Big Bang lead-in, and CSI, up three-tenths to its highest number since January. Among the three nets in repeats, the standout was Winter Wipeout (1.8 for two hours).
